The Meritage has now moved to the heart of Glendale, where the Iron Horse used to be. They have very nicely redone the dining rooms. We had lunch in the main dining room on the first floor, and totally enjoyed being there. The food was excellent. They had several lunch specials that were attractively priced. I can't wait to go...

Thank you Chef Kristie!!! We... More

We ate at the Meritage restaurant with a couple of friends around 6:30 pm on Saturday, Nov 5, 2016. The decor was very nice and the place was clean. The friendly hostess seated us right away as they were not overly crowded. Although the server came right over to take our drink orders, it took a long time to get... More

I was here on business and at the end of the day, happened upon this place. It was a Tuesday and they had a seafood special. 3 course meal for $25 and wine pairing for $12 more. What I did not realize was that the wine pairing was for each course! With a few questions on preferences, the bartender matched... More

We stopped in Sharonville on our way from Michigan to Texas. I ended up with sinus infection and had to go to Urgent care. Waiting on the RX we happened upon the historic area of Sharonville, and went to Meritage. Great food selections, fabulous wine selections. My husband got scallops which are hard to cook right. His were phenomenal. Tender,... More

We had a nice meal for dinner here, but honestly I feel like their seafood plates are extremely overpriced. $27 for a plate of 4 scallops and carrots -- $11 for a very TINY plate of calamari. I did get a black and bleu burger which was tasty, and that seemed appropriately priced. Service was friendly.
